This week's 3Call brings us three journals looking for everything from the Seven Deadly Sins to Oklahoma people of color.
Penduline Accepting Submissions for Seven Deadly Sins Themed Issue
Online submission deadline: August 15, 2013
Penduline, an online literary journal out of Portland, Oregon, is accepting submissions for its tenth issue, themed Seven Deadly Sins. "We are accepting submissions of artwork and fiction (flash fiction, sudden fiction, prose poetry, poetry and short stories) through the deadline date of August 15th, 2013. All writing should be previously unpublished work; preference will be given to works under 3000 words. Submissions longer than 5000 words will neither be read nor considered. We are aiming for a balance of each of the seven sins. Quality audio versions gladly welcomed!" Visit them at www.pendulinepress.com.
The New Verse News covers the news with poems on issues large and small (especially those of a politically progressive bent) by writers from all over the world. The editors seek to post each day a genuinely poetic take on a very current and specific news story. See the website at www.newversenews.com for guidelines and for examples of the kinds of poems The New Verse News publishes. Then paste your submission and a brief bio in the text of an email (no attachments, please) to firstname.lastname@example.org OR email@example.com. Write "Verse News Submission" in the subject line of your email.
Oklahoma Writers of Color Anthology
Online submission deadline: August 1, 2014
Quraysh Ali Lansana and Dr. Jeanetta Calhoun Mish, in collaboration with Mongrel Empire Press, seek to publish the writing of People of Color born and/or raised in Oklahoma or who have lived in the Oklahoma for five or more years.
